Hype Cycle for the Digital Workplace

In our view, a company's strategy is its plan to achieve its most important goals. Strategy execution means aligning work with the company's plan and goals. One of the most critical parts of doing that is aligning the workforce with the work that needs to get done.

We believe this is why Gartner’s 2019 Hype Cycle for the Digital Workplace classifies Internal Talent Marketplaces as “Benefit Rating: Transformational”. In this report, which cites Catalant as a sample vendor in this category, Helen Poitevin writes that “Large enterprises looking to push innovation to the edges may be encumbered by heavy management and control structures. Internal talent marketplaces have the potential to change that. They establish trust through feedback mechanisms. They allow for worker-led innovation and contribute to workers fully taking control of their own careers. They mean much better and more granular tracking of skills, competencies, knowledge and interest of individual workers. This, in turn, will allow enterprises to have a much better view into their workforce and improve workforce planning. They will enable tomorrow’s more lean, agile and adaptive organizations.”

Crossing Catagories to Bridge Strategy and Execution

In our view, a mention in Gartner’s research is a validation of a technology company’s vision and ability to deliver for its customers. We were delighted to be mentioned in eight different research reports over the past 12 months, including four different Hype Cycle reports and a Cool Vendors report.*

We’re grateful for Gartner’s acknowledgment. More importantly, though, we’re convinced that Gartner’s citations across reports on different topics and categories are evidence of something bigger: we’re part of a new category of software that bridges the gap between strategy and execution.

We believe that strategy execution sits at the center of what a company does, how it works, and the people who make it happen. Catalant is purpose-built to help companies organize strategic work, access and allocate the people needed to do it, and track progress against what they set out to achieve.
